0/2 Rounds - Six assassins from the radical group Mlada Bosna prepared to assassinate Franz Ferdinand. Their plan was chaotic and initially failed. One of the six, Gavrilo Princip, carried on alone and succeeded. The assassination gave Austria-Hungary a pretext for war on Serbia, igniting World War I.

The battle resulted in the almost complete destruction of the Russian Second Army, and the suicide of its commanding general, Alexander Samsonov. The battle is known for the advantage accorded by the rapid railway movements of German corps.

0/4 Rounds - Tsingtao was a colony located in China that was actually leased to Germany for 99 years due to the murder of 2 German missionaries. Germany built a port and naval base here, and when General Mitsuomi Kamio was ordered to prepare early for a battle on their home soil at Tsingtao, the Germans were taken by surprise. Soon after Japan declared war, they sent in 23,000 troops along with 1500 troops from Britain. The Germans were able to hold their ground for 2 months, but finally surrendered on November 7th, 1914.

0/4 Rounds - After victory at Cer, the Serbs had initiative and were pressured by the major Allies to attack Austria quickly. Austro-Hungarian commander Potiorek was emotionally invested in avenging the death of Franz Ferdinand, and also needed to prevent further Serbian incursions. After some wide-open combat in the early days, the campaign ground down into trench warfare. This was not a clear Serbian victory like Cer, but the Empire was demoralized by its failure to decisively put the Serbs down.

0/6 Rounds - The First Battle of the Masurian Lakes was a German offensive in the Eastern Front during the early stages of World War I. After the destruction of the Russian Second Army at Tannenberg, the Germans moved to exploit their advantage, mauling the First Russian Army and ejecting it from Germany. Further progress was hampered by the arrival of the Russian Tenth Army on the Germans' left flank. Despite more than two-fold numerical superiority and heavily fortified defensive position, Russians suffered a crushing defeat and retreated in disarray with huge losses, leaving 150 guns.

0/5 Rounds - This battle is a classic. It was the pawn-queen4 of naval warfare during the first World War. Our tournament will focus on the most classic settings on Conquer Club. In context - The Royal Navy had for years been the most powerful on the sea, protecting the merchant ships which formed the "veins" of the British Empire. The Germans had expanded their navy (as had all the main powers). They felt confident enough to patrol the North Sea, particularly around the archipelago known as Heligoland. The British ambushed the Germans there, resulting in nearly complete British victory. The Germans responded with pawn-King's bishop4: To utilize their navy extremely carefully from now on, and not stray far from the minefields and coastal fortifications.

0/4 Rounds - Battle off Texel, October 17th, 1914 Texel is one of the Frisian Islands in Holland. 4 German torpedo boats were en route to lay mines when a much superior British force came across them. The battle was extremely one-sided. All the German boats were sunk and all the crew killed or taken prisoner. This isn't the first time a battle was fought in the waters around Texel. The first time was a much more interesting affair (actually the second of 4 naval battles in those waters). In 1673, the Dutch and French were at war. The British fought alongside the French. In total, 167 warships fought, although not a single one was lost. Since the British were not able to obtain naval superiority, they were not able to land their marines.

0/10 Rounds - (The Battle of the Silver Helmets, also known as the Battle of Haelen) The last battle engaged in purely by cavalry troops. The Belgian Guards (who fought unhorsed) defeated the German 4th cavalry (who fought horsed) and finally brought home to Europe the lessons that cavalry charges could not be maintained against repeating rifles and other weapons. The name "Silver Helmets" came from the pickelhaube (German spiked helmets) left on the field. Despite being a small action, it has gone down in Belgian folklore as a great victory, its reputation probably greater than its true importance.

The Cunard Line's Carmania became one of the first of these cruisers. The German ship Cap Trafalgar was also turned into an armed merchant cruiser, but disguised to look like... the Carmania! The two met off the coast of Brazil, and Cap Trafalgar became the first armed cruiser sunk by another armed cruiser.

What you need to appreciate this phase of the Great War is to feel either the rush of power when you bombard your opponent out of existence, or that horrible feeling when he does it to you. What this tournament is about is bombardment, and to that end I have rounded up all the CC maps that feature bombardment.

In this tourney, we will use both 1v1 and Terminator games to represent the slaughter of civilians. Freemiums are welcome, but must reserve a game slot and keep it reserved throughout the tournament.

0/3 Rounds - After defeat at the Marne, the Germans fell back. The Allies have been criticized for not exploiting their victory better. Maybe a vigorous offensive could have smashed the German armies and led to a quick end to the war. We cannot be certain what would have been. As it happened, the Allied advance was slow and methodical, and the Germans were able to entrench themselves firmly at the Aisne.

Authoritarian measures under the Act included censorship of the press and even private mail, the power to requisition lands and building for military needs, prohibitions on public bonfires (which it was felt could be beacons for Zeppelin raids) and curtailing "wasteful" activities such as drinking.

As Christmas approached and the war showed no sign of reaching an end or even slowing down, troops on both sides began re-assessing their prospects. Stuck in cold, muddy trenches, assaulted by the stench of unburied dead, tired and homesick, soldiers were hungry for a bit of civilization amidst the brutal reality of war..

The "race" ended around 19 October when the last open area from Dixmude to the North Sea was occupied by Belgian troops. The outflanking attempts had resulted in a number of encounter battles but neither side gained a decisive victory.

The Turkish government would not join the war, but Souchon was charismatic and attracted a cult following with the Turkish officers. Souchon's fleet began a training exercise which was in reality a sneak attack. The Ottomans raided Russian ports, trying to capture ships unsuspecting. The main Russian fleet was in Sevastopol, but the major Ottoman victory came on October 29th, in Odessa, where little if any) damage was taken.

0/5 Rounds - Take a rear admiral with a bunch of converted merchant ships and some outdated and under-gunned cruisers. Have him attack an enemy with 5 new ships 8.2 inch guns, and 2 crews with gunnery skill accolades. Have the British be shocked about the loss - you have yourself a Coronel. This is the first British naval loss in a full-out battle since the Battle of Lake Champlain in October of 1814, more than 100 years earlier. The British were shocked about the loss because no living Brit could remember what such a loss felt like.

0/4 Rounds - The Bergmann Offensive was the first engagement of the Caucasus Campaign during World War I. General Georgy Bergmann, commander of I Caucasian Army Corps, took the initiative against the Ottoman Empire. On November 2nd, Bergmann's troops crossed the border in the general direction of Koprükoy. On the right flank, a brigade under Istomin moved from Oltu in the direction of Id. On the left flank a Cossack division under Baratov moved into the Eleskirt valley towards Yuzveran, after it crossed the Aras River. In response the Ottoman 3rd Army went on a general counter-offensive. As a result Russian forces were threatened by an enveloping movement on both sides. Only quick arrival of Russian reinforcements saved the situation. The fighting finally petered out on November 16th.

0/1 Rounds - After the calamity of Galicia-Lemberg, the Austrian army was in full retreat. The fortress city of Przemysl, guarding key transportation routes -- the railway line between Lvov and Krakow, and river crossings across the San River -- was left behind Russian lines. The city's existing fortifications were heavily reinforced, and the town managed to survive a six-week siege by the Russians. The Siege was a brief but very intense phase of operations on the Eastern front. This is a one-round tournament. You will get seventeen 12-player games all at once.

0/4 Rounds - By the time World War I broke out, the world's major navies were switching from coal to oil. Airplanes were rapidly becoming an important military arm. Most transport was still horse-drawn, but motor-powered transport was evolving rapidly and would pass horse-drawn transport in importance before the war ended. Furthermore, a new process was being used which extracted toluol (an explosives component) from petroleum. The Great War was therefore the first oil war, and the capture of Basra by the British in 1914 was the opening round in the Persian Gulf oil wars which are still being fought today.

0/3 Rounds - The First Battle of Champagne, which after minor skirmishes starting ten days earlier, began on 20 December 1914. This was effectively the first significant attack by the Allies against the Germans since the construction of trenches following the so-called 'race to the sea' during the autumn of 1914. Joffre, the French Commander-in-Chief, was determined to win the war quickly, and despite a lack of success in more local attacks against trench lines, resolved to launch a major offensive against the Germans. Despite being outnumbered, the Germans were entrenched, and successfully demonstrated their superiority in defensive warfare via the machine gun. Fighting continued without break until mid-February, where there was a brief lull in the battle to re-organize. After a short break the fighting resumed until 17 March when the entire offensive was called off by the French mostly because of the strength of German counter-attacks (particularly along the La Basse Canal and near Soissons from 8 January-5 February) combined with a costly lack of success.

Their militia soon numbered 12,000 including several famous heroes of the Boer war, but the majority of Boers remained loyal. The government reacted swiftly and successfully. By October the main rebel force had been defeated, and by February all the ringleaders were dead or in jail.

The Russians had recently trounced the Austrians and thought they could exploit this victory by shifting forces north to hammer the Germans. Both sides rushed toward a confrontation with zeal, but after a hard, bitterly cold, and bloody battle their enthusiasm was much diminished.

0/8 Rounds - The Battle of Tanga, also known as the Battle of the Bees, was a failed attempt by the British to capture Tanga, the main port of German East Africa. The German leader Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck gained enormous fame. His combined force of Germans and (native) Askari troops numbered barely 1000, and routed a British-Indian force of more than 8000 men supported by naval artillery. The battle was several times interrupted while troops had to flee attacks by aggressive African bees, leading to the popular name.

0/3 Rounds - The Battle of Givenchy was fought from December 18-22, 1914 The goal was to help ease the French, who were under heavy pressure at Arras, by attacking the Germans around Givenchy to keep them from reinforcing Arras. Sharp fighting broke out on 19 December when Indian troops from the Lahore division launched an attack, successfully capturing two lines of German trenches. However their success was short-lived as a prompt and aggressive counter-attack pushed the Indian troops back out again. On the 20th the Germans counter attacked and actually broke through the lines and occupied part of Givenchy until two British reserve battalions were brought into action. After severe fighting and casualties on both sides the fighting finally died down at the end of the 22nd, where both sides found themselves back to their original lines.

0/3 Rounds - On 16 November, Rear Admiral Franz Hipper—commander of the German battle cruiser squadron—persuaded his superior, Admiral Friedrich von Ingenohl, to ask the Kaiser's permission for a raid. U-17 was sent to investigate the area near Scarborough and Hartlepool for coastal defenses. The submarine reported little onshore defense, no mines within 12 miles of the shore and a steady stream of shipping.

Being an easy target to hit the Germans at approximately 8:10 on the morning of December 16, 1914, commanded by Admiral Franz von Hipper, unleashed a bombardment of the North Sea English seaports of Hartlepool, West Hartlepool, Whitby and Scarborough. The bombardment lasted until around 9:30 am the bombardment (of 1,150 shells) resulted in some 137 fatalities and 592 wounded. The two coastal defense batteries in Hartlepool (Heugh Battery and Lighthouse Battery) responded, firing 143 shells and damaging three German ships, including the heavy cruiser Blucher.

0/4 Rounds - After the Bergmann Offensive, the Russians continued to hold onto Ottoman Territory. In an effort to fight back against the Russians, the Germans and the Ottoman 3rd Army took on a joint mission in the capture of Ardahan and Sarikamish. In the Battle of Ardahan, the city was captured in an operation commanded by German Lt. Col. Stange. The mission of Stange Bey Detachment was to conduct highly visible operations to distract and pin Russian units. Stange Bey's initial mission was to operate in the Chorok region. The unit was materially assisted by the rebellious Adjars of the country, who seized the road. Later Enver modified the original plan toward supporting the Battle of Sarikamish by cutting the Russian support link to Sarikamish-Kars line. In a few short days, the 3rd Army received orders to advance towards Kars. In the face of the 3rd Army's advance Governor Vorontsov planned to pull the Russian Caucasus Army back to Kars. Yudenich ignored Vorontsov's wishes to withdraw, and stayed to defend Sarikamish. Enver Pasha assumed the personal command of the 3rd Army and ordered it into battle against the Russian troops.

The offensive went well at first, even capturing Belgrade, but the Serbians fell back, regrouped, and resupplied. A visit to the front by Serbian King Peter I on Dec 3rd ignited the counteroffensive. By Dec 15th the Austrians had been pushed behind the Drina, and Belgrade was in Serbian hands.

Since then it has been broadened to commemorate Australian and New Zealander contributions at other WW I battles, as well as WW II and Korea. It is also unofficially recognized and observed in Newfoundland, as they were an independent Dominion and the Royal Newfoundland Regiment was the only North American unit to fight at Gallipoli.

Together they put together an impressive assault, but it wasn't enough. At the end of the day, Britain won decisively.

0/2 Rounds - The Second Battle of the Masurian Lakes, also known as the Winter Battle of the Masurian Lakes, was the northern part of the Central Powers' offensive on the Eastern Front in the winter of 1915. The offensive was intended to advance beyond the Vistula River and perhaps knock Russia out of the war. German Chief of Staff Erich von Falkenhayn strongly believed that the war was going to be won on the Western Front and was hesitant to lend support to Paul von Hindenburg, commander of the Eastern Front. However Falkenhayn did eventually sanction Hindenburg's planned offensive. Hindenburg would personally lead the northern offensive in the area of the Masurian Lakes. General Alexander von Linsingen would lead an attack against the Russians in the Carpathians aimed at Lemberg, and further south General Borojevic von Bojna would attempt to relieve the besieged fortress at Przemysl.

The Austrian army had still not recoverd from the disaster of Galicia, and now the German army was also reeling back after the defeat at Lodz. Very little help was available for Przemysl. A relief force was sent, but failed to reach the city. The Russian artillery never stopped, and in addition to combat casualties there were many losses to disease, starvation, and frostbite. On March 22nd the garrison capitulated.

One of those cases is evident with the German Campaign in Angola. Between October 1914 and July 1915, the Germans and Portuguese clashed in Portuguese Angola, even though Germany and Portugal were not at war until March 1916!

0/8 Rounds - Most naval officers knew that it was futile to try to take control of the Dardanelles through sea power alone, and that control of the land would be required. However, Churchill and Augagneur were determined to try. The resulting debacle cost 5 battleships. For full discussion see the Great War forum thread.

0/5 Rounds - Acting governor Hans-Georg von Döring could not believe his ears. In accordance to the Congo Act he had sought neutrality accross the Congo Basin. After all, colonialists from all empires had a common goal. To control local populations and keep interdependent economies running. That was of course, until a few moments ago. British officer Captain Barker and the District commisioner from Keta had demanded the surrender of Togoland, one of the most developed colonies in Africa, under threat of attack. They had a mere 24 hours to prepare.

0/6 Rounds - The sun glimmered on the horizon unhesitatingly drawing down the skies. Lieutenant Colonel Sûleyman Askerî trodded on. The imminent split attack on the Qurna-Basra-Shaiba line grazed his thoughts. They had crossed into british mesopotamia in want of steady supplies and goods. If the Mesopotamian campaign was to succeed, control over the rivers and the fertile land would be crucial. He had brought 18.000 men with him, 4000 regulars and 14.000 arabs and kurds. In his mind he had no doubt they would prevail. The unholy demons would eventually subside against the impending force of Allah's great Ottoman army. Shaiba was his objectif. Command needed it cut off from Basra and the more than 6.000 British and Indian soldiers on their knees. Tomorrow, on april 11 his bombardment was scheduled to commence simultaneous to Qurna. Praise Allah and may he bestow his glory upon us.

0/4 Rounds - As the German strategy for 1915 emphasized the Eastern front, Ypres was the only place they made a real offensive in the West. The initial poison gas attack was so successful that it surprised not only the Allies but even the Germans, exceeding their expectations. A huge hole was ripped in the French line, and British and Canadian troops rushed in to plug it. The Canadian Expeditionary Force was acting independently for the first time, and their successful defense represented the first time that a former colony had beaten a major European power on European soil.

The French were to hold a front, while the British performed a pinwheel rotation around the front, sweeping up victory. It was a little less of a sweep than they hoped.

0/5 Rounds - Wary Liman Von Sanders sighed. Not one year ago he was both German officer and diplomat at the Ottoman court. Now he found himself in charge of Ottoman forces, still away from beloved Germany, disallowed to return. Perhaps a punishment for not convincing the Ottomans to join the war sooner. In a brief glimpse he studied the Ottoman war ministers' letter. A surprise attack on British-French forces to finally push them into the sea and end their Gallipoli campaign.

0/7 Rounds - From 1914 until 1916 Kamerun, back then slightly larger than current day Cameroon, fought valiantly isolated between enemy territories. Their discomforts originated from French Equatorial Guinea to the south and French Central Africa to the north-east, British Nigeria to the west and Belgian Congo to the south-east. It was cumbersome task for the 6000 Germans to hold when facing such asymmetrical disadvantage.

0/9 Rounds - After the terrible beating the Central Powers had taken at Przemysl and Lodz, the Russian star seemed to be rising, and the Austro-Hungarian army seemed to be on the verge of total collapse. The German High Command could not let their primary ally die, so they shifted their strategic emphasis for 1915 from the Western Front to the Eastern Front. With the aid of substantial German reinforcements, the Austro-Hungarians were able to recover. Soon, it was the Russians who were falling apart.

0/4 Rounds - The second battle of Artois, 9 May-18 June 1915, was the most important part of the Allied spring offensive of 1915. It was hoped to capture Vimy Ridge, break through the German lines, and advance into the Douai plain. This would cut key German railway lines and perhaps force them to retreat from their great salient bulging out into France. The first part of the plan, a British advance over the Aubers Ridge, was a total failure. The French attack at Vimy Ridge, on the other hand, was a huge success. Unfortunately, with the British contained, the Germans were able to refocus their reserves and push the French back. In the end, no objective was achieved. For a more complete discussion, see the Great War thread in the forum.

0/7 Rounds - Luigi Cadorna, the Italian chief of staff, peered at his map as it lay on the table. His heart raced at a horse's pace despite the absence of any action. About a month ago Italy had formally delcared its intentions, join the 'Triple Entente' against the 'central powers'. The plan filled him with anticipation. He retraced their offensive plan gently brushing the map with the top of his finger. Objectif was to surprise the Austro-Hungarians across the river Isonzo and to disable enemy mobility on the frontline. Little did he know he was making the same disastrous mistakes as the western front in Flanders and France.

In one of the allies' most dishonorable episodes, the battle of Gully Ravine turned into a massacre the likes Galipolli had not witnessed. Streams of red slithered from the corpsed bullwark to the cold of the sea.

0/16 Rounds - 2000 Australians died to capture Lone Pine Ridge, and 6000 Ottoman soldiers died trying to take it back. Although nominally a victory, the battle of Lone Pine accomplished little except to buy one-sixth of a square mile of land at an expensive price. For a more complete discussion, see the Great War thread in the forum. This tourney features a large number of Standard or Terminator games on site-default settings (sunny chained escalating). If you love this type of game (basically, SoC-style games) you will love this tournament.

0/9 Rounds - In the night of August 6th the New-zealand and Australian division broke out of their precarious position in the Anzac, whilst the British IX corps landed to the north. Under the command of english general Alexander Godley they led an assault on the Sari Bair range, a set of barren hills projecting in front of the coastline. The capture of the range's two peaks, Hill 971 and Chunuk Bair, would offer considerable relief to beach positions. The operation was one among several in a grand august offensive against the Ottoman empire. Objectif, break the stalemate and capture Chunuk Bair in the night of August 7th 1915.

0/6 Rounds - The amphibious landing at Suvla Bay was part of the August Offensive (the final British attempt to break the deadlock of Gallipoli). The landing commenced on the night of August 6th, 1915. Despite facing only light opposition, the landing at ended in a stalemate due to mismanagement. On August 15th, Lieutenant-General Sir Frederick Stopford was dismissed due to his inactivity and indecision. His performance in command was one of the most incompetent feats of generalship of the First World War. For a more complete discussion, see the Great War thread in the forum.

0/3 Rounds - Barely two weeks later, the fighting was renewed. The Italians had made some progress, although in the era of trench warfare that didn't mean much. This was the last of the battles in 2014, as the winter chill began to set in. Both armies had now taken heavy casualties and were under-supplied. The Austrians begged the Germans to declare war on Italy. However, it wasn't until August of 1916 that Italy declared war on Germany.

0/6 Rounds - Bulgaria's entry in to the war represented a massive and catastrophic failure of Russian diplomacy in the years before WW I. When Bulgaria's Balkan League partners robbed her of the spoils of the First Balkan War, Russia sided with Serbia instead of Bulgaria, leading to Bulgaria's alliance with Germany two years later.

With not enough food to reach Basra, they stopped at the oasis of Kut el Amara for what they hoped was a brief delay, waiting for fresh supplies.

0/3 Rounds - The Morava Offensive is generally credited as a Bulgarian victory, but credit needs to be given to the German and Austro-Hungarian forces converging. The theme is based on the fact that an alliance of three powers contributed to the victory. For a more thorough discussion, please visit the Great War thread in the forum.

0/5 Rounds - Bulgaria's primary war aim was the occupation of Vardar Macedonia. A key part of that was controlling the Vardar River Valley and preventing the Serbs from receiving supplies from the Greeks, French, or British. General Todorov's 2nd Bulgarian Army achieved this goal swiftly and efficiently. For a more complete discussion, please visit the Great War thread in the forum.

0/6 Rounds - The French Armee d'Orient landed in Thessalonika and advanced northward in Macedonia to try to protect the Salonika-Skopje railway line and resupply the Serbs. Arriving at Niš, they found they were too late, and the line between Niš and Skopje was already under Bulgarian Control. Despite this, the French fought vigorously, first attacking eastward towards the Bulgarian front and then on the defensive, as new Bulgarian forces arrived from the North.

He succeeded in capturing this location, but lost 1,600 men in the process and could not continue to Kut. Thus it ranks in the history books as a defeat.

0/6 Rounds - With the main advance at Verdun completely stalled, Crown Prince Wilhelm decided to try a flanking movement, pivoting on the left bank of the Meuse and taking out the French artillery batteries along the Bois Bourrus Ridge. On the way was a large hill ominously named Le Mort-Homme (the Dead Man). This had to be seized, and it was here and on neighbouring Hill 304 that some of the bloodiest encounters of the Verdun campaign took place.

0/8 Rounds - With the French fighting for their very survival at Verdun, they begged their allies to launch new offensives against the Germans to take the pressure off of France. The British responded with a very ambitious offensive on the Somme, the Russians began a somewhat-less ambitious offensive in the Lake Naroch region, and the Italians offered up the least ambitious offensive of all, the Fifth Battle of the Isonzo. For a more complete discussion please visit the Great War thread in the forum.

0/6 Rounds - Like Fifth Isonzo, the Lake Naroch operation was largely prompted by a need to relieve the pressure on France, which was fighting for survival at Verdun. The Russians expected an easy victory and instead suffered an embarrassing defeat. For a more complete discussion, please visit the Great War thread in the forum.

0/10 Rounds - The Kut debacle cost the British 30,000 casualties and 14,000 of their troops captured, of whom 3/4 did not survive the P.O.W. camps. Only after the war did the truth emerge that this tragedy was completely unnecessary, a tragedy produced by the hubris of just one man. For the full story see the Great War thread in the forums.
